However, it is also worth mentioning that the University of Stuttgart trains around 80 percent of German space engineers, is home to 80 percent of all research institutes in Baden-Württemberg and is also strong in production technology. Consequently, the Swabian city is heavily focused on transport + logistics and technology + innovation.
